It is not love of self but hatred of self which is at the root of the troubles that afflict our world.

Where you lead

If you don’t notice and appreciate life’s beauty today, why will anyone else? If you don’t make the effort to make a difference, why should anyone else?

It’s easy to assume that someone else will take up the slack. But when everyone makes that assumption, nothing much gets done.

Choose instead to act as if all of life is seeing itself through your eyes. Live as if all of life is depending on you to express its highest, most beautiful purpose through what you do.

Live as though your world depends on you. Because it does, even when no one appears to be watching, and even when no one seems to care.

All that you think, all that you do, and all that you are, truly matters. It goes far beyond you and makes the world what it is.

Lead with care, lead with positive purpose, lead with love. And your world becomes a little bit brighter as it follows where you lead.
